Very happy with these earbuds – a great purchase. Excellent sound output, with great bass and good sound all round, not overpowering, but just great for listening to music. For the price point I think it is excellent value, and can match other earbuds that are more than double the price of this. Had not heard of Taotronics till I bought a desk lamp from them and was so impressed with the lamp that I thought I’d give their Bluetooth earbuds a go. Battery life is good – can get around 4 hours, and the case is handy, not too bulky. Connects quickly each time out of the case. The touch controls can be a bit fiddly till you get used to them. The only thing that is not as described is the noise cancellation – there’s not much noise cancellation when listening to these. I am not to fussed about that as I prefer to be aware of my surroundings, but to some sound-buffs this may be important. When using these to talk on the phone, it is a bit grainy, but otherwise fine, the mic’s good and voice reception clear. If you want to save money but still get a pair of earbuds that perform well, and give you quality sound, then I would definitely recommend the SoundLiberty 53.
